I’ve tried to use the Up­date As­sis­tant to up­grade to Win­dows 10 1809, but it says I’m at the lat­est ver­sion (1803). Where do I go from here? Ian Brighton

Un­for­tu­nately, the Oc­to­ber 2018 Up­date has been con­tin­u­ally plagued by prob­lems and wasn’t rolled out un­til mid-Novem­ber. By now you should have re­ceived it; if not, down­load a fresh copy of the as­sis­tant and try again.

Since up­grad­ing to Win­dows 10 1809, I’m un­able to get any of my Vir­tu­alBox machines to load. What’s hap­pened? Lok Yüan

We’ve dis­cov­ered that the new Ap­pli­ca­tion Guard se­cu­rity fea­ture pre­vents Vir­tu­alBox from sup­port­ing 64-bit hosts. Switch it off via the Win­dows Fea­tures di­a­log, re­boot and your vir­tual machines will hope­fully work again.

Can you rec­om­mend a good free email-check­ing tool that will alert me to new emails when they ar­rive? John Moore

Try PopTrayU (http://poptrayu. source­forge.net/), which can be con­fig­ured to check mul­ti­ple ac­counts at a spec­i­fied in­ter­val – alerts are then dis­played in the Taskbar no­ti­fi­ca­tion area.
